    Hi everyone, I am a freshman in UBC this fall. Since I have read British GCE A Level Economics before, I am eligible for credit transfer for Econ 101 and Econ 102 in UBC. However, in order to have a sound background, I want to read Econ101,Econ102 again. My question is, if I am failed in Econ 101,102 test, can I still get credits as a result of credit transfer from A Level? Thanks a lot!

    Pretty sure you can't but you can check contact UBC to be sure: http://www.students.ubc.ca/coursesreg/transfer-credit/

    FWIW, first year econ courses aren't known to be overly difficult. Depending on which prof you get, it might even be a GPA booster for you. It's up to you whether or not you want to take the gamble.

    Yay for A Levels!

    Do you plan to major in econ at all? if not then don't re-take it. it's a crappy course, i dont know who in their right mind would take it for fun. unless you're 100% sure you'll do well in the class lol, most 1st years struggle with it.
